Crowded House drummer, Paul Hester, found dead in Australian park
SYDNEY, Australia (AP) – The drummer from popular 1980s Australian rock band Crowded House has been found dead in a park in southern Australia, a newspaper reported Monday.
Paul Hester, 46, failed to return home after taking his two dogs for a walk late Saturday, the Daily Telegraph reported.
Police found the drummer’s body Sunday in a park near his home in the southern city of Melbourne, the newspaper said.
The newspaper did not explain how Hester died, but reported that police said there were no suspicious circumstances surrounding his death.
Hester played in several small bands before joining the New Zealand group Split Enz in 1983. He and Split Enz singer Neil Finn formed Crowded House in 1985 with bass player Nick Seymour.
Crowded House was one of Australia’s most successful bands in the late 1980s and early 1990s, with international hits such as Don’t Dream it’s Over and Weather with You.
Currently touring in London, Finn mourned the loss of his one-time band member.
“I am deeply saddened by the loss of a close friend,” Finn told the Daily Telegraph.
Hester is survived by his girlfriend Mardi Sommerfield and their two daughters, ages eight and 10.
